GCC Power Kuwait 2021 (Gulf CIGRE) e-Conference

GCC Power Kuwait 2021 (Gulf CIGRE) e-Conference


Join us on Tuesday, October 26 at 11:45am-1:30pm Arabia Standard Time at GCC Power E-Conference for a poster presentation by Sylvain Mandrau, Product Manager – Visual Intelligence at GE Digital’s Grid Software on "Mitigating threats and strengthening the Grid with AI-based Inspection Programs."


GCC countries face a multitude of climate change challenges, regulatory requirements, and continued pressure from consumers to reduce outages. Traditional approaches to transmission and distribution asset management which include periodic visual inspections and the replacement of assets based on fixed cycles based on age just don’t work anymore.


In this insightful session , you’ll learn how leveraging an AI visual inspection platform can drive improvements in both unplanned outages and compliance violations, eliminate “human-bottlenecks” in the data evaluation process, support better and faster decision making, improve reliability and safety and drive down costs.


The presentation will address the following key topics:


  • Technology aspects to consider when selecting a solution that can support long term maintenance objectives
  • How to set up training data sets to ensure an AI-enabled platform can take visual inspection data and identify what it is looking at and even recognize defects
  • Why early adopters are signaling their intent to move from small pilots to full scale enterprise programs.


If you’d like to learn more about how a human-guided AI-based inspection program can help your utility, register today!
